Garden: things are just going along, the very first cherry tomatoes are juuuuust starting to get a blush! I think we’re going to have to pull out the peas and zucchini this weekend, because they’re just not doing well. I might plant some bush beans in their places, those always do well!

We pulled another carrot, and this one was actually of a decent size! Yum.

carrot!

The peppers are doing pretty well – first baby serrano!

Knitting: I finally finished up a pair of socks that’s been riding around in my purse for at least six months. They’re Malabrigo sock, which I know, KNOW isn’t good for socks but they’re so nice anyway.

The colour is a really pretty stormy blue-grey – I’d love to knit a sweater in this colour. Pattern is my own, top down with tubular cast on, 68 stitches on 2mm.

And since we’re headed to Vancouver in a week, I need to think about what knitting to bring!

travel knitting considerations

I did eliminate that yellow madtosh from consideration, because although beautiful, I don’t want to take worsted weight on a trip. I’m thinking a shawl, a fingering weight sweater, and maybe a pair of socks to work on.

Oh, and I did I say bread? This loaf came out great.

    I swore off knitting socks in Malabrigo and then I thought “just one more pair” and gave them to a friend for Christmas.

    And now one of them has a hole and she’s bringing them back to me for darning.

    I KNEW IT WAS WRONG.
